CACE co-founder Adrian Whitehead has joined Darebin's interim advisory board on its climate emergency response and attended it first meeting last Thursday (5/10/17). He joins a diverse of team of staff, councilors, community members from a range of back grounds.
Originally planned to be the "Darebin Energy Foundation" Interim Advisory Board, a long time project of Councillor Trent McCarthy, this new board will take on the role of developing the terms of reference to allow the setting up a foundation to help the councils response to the climate emergency.
The first challenge will be to bring the boards members up to speed on what is the climate emergency and how Darebin's response will differ from other foundations such as Moreland and Yarra energy foundations.
Initial ideas include developing a Climate Emergency Think Tank and coming up with a more appropriate name.
